We are the SMART choice to help you manage your bone health.
Osteoporosis causes the bones in our body to become weak and brittle over time. It usually develops without any symptoms or pain, and it is commonly not discovered until the wakened bones cause painful bone breaks (fractures). These fractures can be extremely life-changing, resulting in pain and, sometimes, disability. Currently more than 10 million Americans live with osteoporosis and that number continues to grow.
Given this bone condition exists for many, and if you’ve ever broken a bone, or if you suspect your bone quality might be declining, it’s important that you receive the appropriate treatment and follow up to make sure you stay healthy and safe.
Make an appointment for your bone health
The goal is to evaluate your bone health - to determine if you have osteoporosis and to treat it. There are many ways we can help.

“Dr. Shahan Yacoublan is one of the best doctors I've ever dealt with, he performed a hip replacement on me and everything went extremely well. I recommend him if you are looking for an excellent surgeon that cares about his patient”- Edward C.
